The Benefits of Concrete Fences

Written by GJ Stott
Precast concrete fences are superior to wood, wrought iron, vinyl, brick, block and stucco in most every way. Nothing outlasts it in either mild or severe climates.

When most people consider building a fence, the first thing that comes to mind is probably not a concrete fence. We generally associate wood, wrought iron, vinyl, brick, block and stucco with fencing. But in reality, when the properties of concrete are examined it becomes clear that it is a very practical choice, possibly the perfect material for most concrete fence applications. A concrete fence is…

  • Extremely durable and stable
  • Low maintenance
  • Easy to color and customize
  • Not affected by insects
  • Moderately priced building material
  • Available universally
  • Can be formed into many designs
  • Capable of being engineered for most any application

All of these characteristics could be considered a dream list when designing and building a concrete fence, whether it’s in your backyard, surrounding a business or a highway sound wall. Concrete fences have been steadily growing in popularity for many years, but recent developments in concrete forming techniques have helped it to overtake more traditional fence materials.

Concrete Fences are the Superior Fences

Precast concrete fences are superior to wood, wrought iron, vinyl, brick, block and stucco in most every way. Nothing outlasts it in either mild or severe climates. While other materials rapidly deteriorate in extremes of weather, environment and temperature, a precast concrete fence endures with little maintenance.
